I have edited my local copy of libs/test/build/Jamfile.v2 by adding

alias minimal : : : :

IIUC, this is the way to declare that there's a target here that
will add the <asynch-exceptions>on property to anything that uses

I also have this Jamfile in my project:

project mtl4/sequence/algorithm ;

import testing ;
import mtl4 ;

run copy.cpp /boost/test//minimal ;

Yet, when I compile that file with the msvc-8.0 toolset I get:

call "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\\bin\vcvars32.bat" > nul
cl /Zm800 -nologo -TP /Z7 /Od /Ob0 /GR /MDd @"bin\copy.test\msvc-8.0\debug\asynch-exceptions-on\copy.obj.rsp" -c -Fo"bin\copy.test\msvc-8.0\debug\asynch-exceptions-on\copy.obj"

i.e. no /EHx flags appear in the command-line. What am I missing?
msvc.jam has been modified with appropriate feature and flags
declarations (in CVS).
